A message from 21st WCBIP President, Prof. Guangfa Wang


     



   


        
Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of our organizing committee, I would like to warmly invite you to attend the virtual WCBIP 2020 from Nov.19th to 22nd , 2020. This biennial congress is hosted by the WABIP, and is  co-organized by the Chinese Medical Association and its affiliated Chinese Thoracic Society.



COVID19 has been swept across the word. It changes many things including the date and the form of WCBIP 2020. As the epidemic of COVID19 in many countries is still severe and its future is uncertain in every corner of the word, we have to change the on-site congress to a virtual one and postpone the date to Nov.19-22. It is a hard decision after we had a serious discussion with the executive board. We would appreciate all the colleagues’ comprehension to the tough choice. The life needs to be continued, the mission of WABIP needs to be handed down even with the epidemic of COVID19.  


As the largest international organization in the area of bronchology and interventional pulmonology, the WABIP has over 8,600 members globally. Our organization has developed very quickly in the past decade, benefiting from the innovations and progresses of respiratory endoscopy and interventional pulmonology


The theme of WCBIP 2020 is “New Land, New Scope”. “New Land” implies that bronchology and interventional pulmonology is a new subfield of modern respiratory medicine. Latest technologic innovations in Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology is one of the promising frontiers of Modern Respirology. “New Land” also means that advancing countries like China and up and coming countries are involving themselves deeper in the academic pursuits of bronchology and interventional pulmonology. Click Here to Read More...
